Ahriman's Prophecy is one of the best console style role playing games ever made with the RPGmaker engine. Graphics, music and sounds are well made and the world you have to explore is really huge. Of course there is lots of fighting and some (senseless) running around to level up before the next big quest, but that's part of the concept (and of the genre) and it never gets boring.
The story is interesting (but not without clichés) and very epic. You start as a young teenage girl in a small village that soon has to fight for the destiny of the world and to prevent an old dark prophecy. But of course you have friends that will help you on your quest.
Expect many hours of gameplay (developer says 50+ but it took me more than hundred to solve the game), lots of sidequests, tons of enemies, weapons and magical skills. To put it briefly: Expect quality entertainment for a very long time!
